a country clash with police and tens of thousands marched in the capital what's been dubbed and to monte day. and the city entail sorry its message brings up dozens of demonstrators the parliament in the drink. called on muslims to syria's rebels while an opposition group kidnaps a lebanese journalist in aleppo saying his work is not compatible with the revolution. as obama and romney tried to drown each other over just ten days that's unfolding was a presidential election as many american still don't know.
as for am here in moscow you're live with us here on r.t. good to have you with us thousands of families are now struggling to escape from the besieged libyan city of bani walid as the bloody assault by pro-government militias continues into its third week authorities say military action has been stopped and aid is being distributed however sources inside the city says there's no water food or medicine fighters in the area also blocking a desert highway trapping those who managed to flee the violence look at this the people did. this get this gun and this people know this thing now why you don't know one week now this is the outside and the didn't know what we're doing when i was living when i think when when the government along better brush why it was can you want to actually find it harms and shelters indiscriminately move in two thousand families have fled seven families are with us at the moment yesterday we
fled to the valley but they were firing attacks even than their families who died in the shelling children died too then fired by women and children straight to the head. i sucks promotions and rockets of our hands i saw the dad. see a libyan political activist choose a relatives all inside but i knew our leader says the international community is ignoring the crisis in libya just a warning you may find some of the images in this upcoming report upsetting. houses are big birds this is the people who are inside the city who can move. and leave the city. here of the militia of fear of the. belongings inside and see the. united nations go on fewer. people go
inside their houses you will see a. picture of. the inverses the west is filming on libyans letting these militias who were there for the world to the libyans even to kill but of those who know who i was. the worst is politicizing these militias so i will leave you here alone with him on the first of . all of the interference of use militias. later maintains it had the right to intervene in libya last in order to end the bloodshed however an about face members of the alliance are now reluctant to acknowledge the humanitarian disaster in by the way lead the former british ambassador to libya oliver miles or says nato no longer has any responsibilities in the country. i think that these problems are got to be sorted out by the libyans and they are being sorted out of
the worst problem at the moment is the one in delhi were lead and that's a political problem compounded by a very old feud between two transfer between mr raja and bani walid the fighting that's going on now is directly because of the belief that the people in the war lead have been harboring al i'm sure. the revolution on the new government you can call a humanitarian crisis relatively small town of bani walid has something like seventy thousand inhabitants the number of fighters who are believed to be loyal to gadhafi is not very large but of course fighting is terrible and of course it's got to it we must hope that it comes to an end as soon as possible. keeping a close eye on the situation in bani walid more firsthand accounts from the embattled town now available at our dot com check up on the listeners on the troubles and maybe it's facing
a year after its longstanding leader it was toppled the armed revolt with the help of me. massive crowds have descended on the spanish parliament voicing their anger over severe also costs imposed by the government for as reports a ride from the heart of the protests in madrid. he's number that attend that here in. this thing is this showing the movement of one sheep my friends in the country and now unemployed and one enforced manuf are out for work and that's obviously cruising a huge amount of value over the journey the yet saying as long as experience the road lives the yet crisis doesn't discriminate we've seen protests like this happening in italy in greece and in russia protests going on we saw clashes breaking out in the north of italy but the level of anger amongst people really
rising we've seen this euro crisis. quite just dragging on for a number of years now really causing people as a very man of economic playing. the n.t. monti day has drawn tens of thousands to the streets of it to these capital in protests over the belt tightening measures the country's current prime minister is taking research a regional rogue group speeding's people are right to fear that the country could fall victim to the y.b. euro crisis. people who are very well aware that the government's main goal is the story on the italian people and so the protest ball was really to discredit the government in a much broader sense and in our usual return to a more democratic more politics in europe the problem is that the situation is that only getting worse especially since november last year when these i mean they're technically going into power but we've seen serious tax hikes we've seen in spending cuts we've seen reforms in all the holes in the pension system
a. veritable of assaults on labor rights and here in florence i mean you can even see it in the streets in the outskirts there are more and more people who are sleeping out in the streets and i mean the poor girls at night when the situation is getting worse it's not just out there as it is but i do think that in the immediate next in line with the situation in in spain especially it's been further out of control over the order it is actually not you who cut back spending money to invest more in the economy to invest in growth to make sure that there are jobs and the only way to ultimately get out of this debt is to grow your way out of that and not just cut your way out of it so one of the main arguments of the people here is that it is if you actually listen to the people who are not too good an initial interest from abroad you will come up with a lot more sensible a lot more rational response to this crisis. and i stay with us for all the updates on the protests are raging across the e.u. as our correspondents are bring you the very latest.
on the leader of al qaida amen he really has urged muslims to kidnap westerners as a means to free in prison jihad this and a new video posted online he also agents lamis to support the syrian rebels with quote all that they can and quote. accuse international community of allowing president to ask the chance to defeat the syrian opposition the terrorist leaders sees the conflict as an opportunity. otherwise obviously in the country meanwhile in the city of aleppo in a level where half kidnapped a lebanese journalist say his work is not in line with their revolution mind you well often send. the german monthly news magazine says it's not the first time rebels have resorted to such tactics if what they do is a criminal action at this journalist but he is not the first journalist who was
kidnapped we see and a huge number of journalists we are chilled by by the rebels in syria were killed by related groups i just want. to to remember that the journalists also the syrian t.v. channel syrian used to be which where were. some journalists and where the news building was the take to also in the end of june this year so what i ask where are the organizations where are the organizations moralist. or where are they protesting against the sections and i ask myself something else i have being in syria as a journalist the horse ahead of us i was in the masters and what i can say i met a lot of journalists who were not reporting consistent to the syrian government cause they were not detained they were knocking at their feet we are free to virtually this country so you see that there is a huge difference how do you know this murder in syria and the monster huge
difference in the risk. as a conflict drags on that is not only syrians living inside the water in the country that have been us across the border in israel to pipe territory one a community of syrians advice in tough times it's vital trade with damascus has now dried out more on that. green party candidate jill stein was arrested for trying to enter the presidential debate at hofstra university and now i know why there's never a third party candidate at the debates because the cops left the cuffs on them when they try to get in we all know we have a two party system so why do we lie to ourselves and pretend it's not that way it's the lying that bothers me it's the illusion that you have the freedom of choice
when there are only two real options cut out the games just make the two party system the law of the land just make the two parties part of the government make their inner workings transparent and bound by the law and make it clear to every american that there are only two real ladders to climb to power stop lying to me and to everyone else about this democracy stuff what forty percent of the country are independents with virtually no representation either cut the lies and make the two party system the law or make your lies become true by letting the candidates like jill stein and gary johnson have a simple conversation with obama and romney on t.v. if there indeed extremists then this should show through at the debates right there's nothing scary about competition in an election but that's just my opinion. what lies ahead for you will the movement mobilize for
a new america who stands for those nine percent to a selection of those go right to the twenty ninth. nuclear. side the. radioactive fallout of government betrayal the government of law everything lauded and lauded and claude how can the truth be revealed if there's no official evidence there was indeed a very great danger to the service make a search who will given no problem. and to the people of this country generally because all the radioactive for all. the secrets of the u.k.'s nuclear tests.
is. easy. it wasn't hard to see good to have you with us in the race for the us presidency is heading towards its final week with the polls showing both republican and democratic candidates as being effectively tied while many americans a dozen songs of the with obama and romney might be ready for an alternative some
don't even realize there's already a different choice laurie hospitals took to the streets of new york to find out if people know third party candidates exist at all. this week third party candidates for the u.s. presidency held a debate do americans even know that this week let's talk about that did you watch the third party debate. what do you think did best. obama do best no that's not the third party debate who do you think did a good job in the third party debate i think think the parag obama did a little bit better job than mitt romney i know that the third party debate that was the main candidates the day or the third parties or we have actual other candidates that are running did you know that no i didn't know there's jill stein she's the the green party there's gary johnson libertarian and none of these names
ring a bell and i think it's unfortunate that americans don't know they have more than two main options but you know we're stuck with democrats or republicans we don't go over for that so why do you think that is. the tradition. tradition. we do we used to i don't think either one of the third party have other ideas other than democrat into somebody sure they do they're against the n.c.a.a. they're against the war on drugs they're against drone strikes there's a lot of other ideas coming from you don't agree with any about no drone strikes no but why not protecting us and saving our soldiers from being killed even when they have a very low actually percentage rate of unfortunate collateral damage as part of war you know what else is running besides the two main ones don't i don't so do you feel informed enough to make a vote. no. for to the good of a right i think the media has pretty much walked to that whole aspect out why do
they do that they're supposed to be impartial to supposed to be saying the news the poor are so you know i mean. you've got democrats you go. two heads of the same snake and they're both supporting big business big corporations they want to make it look like you have a choice you know what's been said at the same point so it seems like most americans don't know that there are more than two candidates running for president and with only a few days left of voting day chances are obama or romney is going to be elected. well be embellished of by the mainstream media third party candidates do have a chance to deliver their messages to the verges here on r.g.p. and a little more than a week of the final round of the us presidential third party debate will be hosts it on the space channel in the run up to the event moderator tom hartman from marty's at the big picture says his views on the significance third parties
historically have have influenced presidential elections there's never been a third party that actually won one but there have been third parties that have changed the nature of presidential elections i don't think that in this election cycle the third parties are going to have a real significant effect in terms of this particular election but what they are doing and what these debates are doing is raising those issues raising those topics and subjects that generally are ignored by both the corporate mainstream media and the two major political parties in ways that that tend to energize movements and movement politics is typically where actual political change happens movement politics eventually infiltrate even major party politics so so i think that these are very important things. to miss the final round of third party debates you can watch that here on monday november the fifth and don't forget we have special
coverage of the u.s. election on air and online each week looking at the race with a fresh eye something this monday with says the presidential campaign through the eyes of the protest movement focusing on domestic policies and the economy what will change when america picks its president amid muslim rage walking the run tightrope pushing china and russia as occupy anger spreads to two parties still dictate we'll serve. you a selection of clothes they are beginning of july twenty second. activists have staged a protest in central moscow to support opposition figures who were this week charged with plotting disorder in russia the rally was broken up by police who said the group violated the law requiring advance permission for demonstrations in the city center some leaders were detained but released shortly after the protesters demanded all charges against high profile opposition leader said he'll dot's off

as the bloodshed in syria continues its effects are being felt in the nearby israeli occupied golan heights wondrous community which has for years been dependent on damascus as an office in desperate times because of the conflict archies a real political reports. you cannot hear the gunfights of homes and the local from here but residents of the small village of marsh in the golan heights are nevertheless feeling the effects of fighting in syria since two thousand and five the druze farmers here in the golan heights have been selling the excess of their apple crops to damascus a trade facilitated by the united nations and the red cross but says their most began in syria many farmers here start to worry that these sweet apples may end up being a rather bitter fruit. apples are the main source of income for the druze families in this area until seven years ago they struggled while trying to compete with the produce of the israeli settlers who locals say go the same apples but because of
the israeli government subsidies pay less to go the harvest and sell for a bigger price an offer from damascus seemed like a blessing at the time the syrian government. says part of syria their produce our produce is part of syria so they were committed to truth to help. farmers and. for marketing. the golan heights have been occupied by israel since one thousand nine hundred sixty seven some twenty thousand jews living here consider this land syrian and themselves syrians does a helping hand from damascus seemed a logical solution to the problem even israeli government allowed the export to take place but with the civil war raging on across the border there still has been no offer for the apples from the syrian government something which begins to boree local farmers. we are just simple people we have no idea of politics
but our country used to be. and now the north and that affects us financially farmers say this year's harvest is much bigger than last year's but says the quota for the israeli markets has already been made and syria remains silent the jews leave much of the produce to rant. about the whole of the middle east is in trouble now. and we are the ones getting hit it it goes courting the golan heights. other stories from around the world a series of attacks in iraq marks a muslim holiday of. naming at least thirty one day then around one hundred injured and one of the first i thought violence a roadside bomb was detonated as a bus carrying shy pilgrims from iran passed by now. also a gun attack on worshippers in the northern city of mosul authorities are now promising to rev up security during the holy period.
four people have been killed and scores injured in the ongoing clashes in the proven capital lima as police tried to dig vendors from one of the city's or central market violence first erupted on thursday after the flow of goods into the area was blocked traders have so far refused to back down over plans to relocate the a paradigm market to a different part of the city where the rent is much higher. thousands of protesters have clashed with police in the chinese city of me over the proposed expansion of a chemical factory demonstrators claim that the increase pollution from the plant will negatively impact their health local police were forced to break up the rally after being attacked with rocks residents however said the protests turned violent only after security forces used tear gas and began arresting activists. and just a few minutes r.t. talk c u k basic condom is marked littlewood about what he things should be done to
imagine as a hedge. phone watching show every single mom. and waiting for you to stumble. i saw a man with a video camera so i moved over and he phoned me. you know we realized there were following everyone from early in the morning. the only chance to get rid of him. is to reveal him. me devil operation on our cheek.
i'm with mark little words the director of the institute of economic affairs he says that austerity measures aren't a recipe for economic growth but they are a prerequisite littlewood why are stars the measures so necessary but what we actually need is to get the economy back into some form of balance we are living a normal sleep beyond it's and actually all of the talk about austerity in the united kingdom is somewhat misplaced and that might be the political rhetoric but if you actually look at the numbers it is the british government's intention to add
six hundred billion to the national debt over the course of this parliament that's to say they're going to spend six hundred billion pounds sterling more than they bring in taxes and that's austerity i wouldn't like to see us and we can see by looking around the world with everybody talks about the quote but at the moment the process actually this is in very large part i question the process caused by tech and i think that one of the lessons that we put forth is that spending money. is not a root. the moment segregation of spending money started it was the root canal mix everybody should greece would be like the germany not the other way right so it is void to actually bring all a group foreign citizens to some form of patents ultimately countries go bust just like company spokesman leave that to foster and if you will continually spending and from the state more than you offer you will then just like the company you are hated.
